Description of problem:
when /dev/cdrom and /dev/cdrom1 both contain at the same time a CDROM with an
identic label, if you unmount /dev/cdrom1, the icon of the mounted CDROM
remains however on the screen until you logout, and everytime you try to mount
or umount rightclicking on that icon, a message box appears issued by nautilus
saying it is unable to mount/unmount the volume.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. in a machine containing two CD drives and running sawfish window manager,
insert two CD's with the same label, 2 icons appear when the discs are mounted;
2. eject both CD's rightclicking on the icon of the mounted disc;
Actual Results: one of the 2 icons remain on the desktop until you log out,
however the disc is unmounted. That icon is useless: you can't perform any
operation on it: opening, unmounting, etc. Each time you repeat steps 1 and 2,
you will have a new useless copy of that icon.
Expected Results: The icon corresponding to an unmounted volume should
disappear from the desktop
it happens only with the icon corresponding to /dev/cdrom1, i.e. the second CD

We will pull down any upstream fix. You may want to add yourself to the "cc"
line on that gnome.org bug.
